New Lambton Heights is a suburb of Newcastle, New South Wales, Australia, located 9 kilometres (6 mi) west of Newcastle's central business district. It is split between the City of Lake Macquarie and City of Newcastle local government areas.
The suburb is the location of a major hospital complex that includes the John Hunter, John Hunter Children's, Rankin Park and Newcastle Private hospitals, and the Royal Newcastle Centre, which was previously known as the Royal Newcastle Hospital before it moved from its original site near Newcastle Beach. Also in the suburb are water reservoirs, a primary school and several small bushland reserves. It is largely populated by doctors and other hospital staff, and hence is generally regarded within the higher end of Newcastle's socio-economic scale, along with suburbs such as Merewether Heights.
